YQQ seeking art that celebrates “Island Connections”

The airport is seeking two and three dimensional art pieces that celebrate a connection to the Island

The Comox Valley Airport Commission and the Comox Valley Community Arts Council are seeking submissions for the 2015 Art and Culture Program at the Comox Valley Airport. This year’s exhibition entitled: Island Connections will run for six months from November 2015 to May 2016.

In this call for submission, the airport is seeking two and three dimensional art pieces that celebrate a connection to the Island – to the many special places, people and experiences available on Northern Vancouver Island. Work can be representative of the emotional, physical, literal and/or ethereal sense of being linked or associated with this part of the Island. Art submissions may be in the form of paintings, original prints, photography, mixed media, textiles and/or sculpture.

The Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) is the first point of entry for many Vancouver Island tourists. Part of the airport’s responsibility is to help form passengers’ first perceptions of the Comox Valley and Vancouver Island. Open to all artists residing in the Comox Valley Airport’s catchment area of Northern Vancouver Island.

Submissions must be made online at www.comoxvalleyarts.com and entries will be accepted until August 31, 2015. View the submission guidelines at www.comoxairport.com; look under Airport Services/Art and Culture Program.
